ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said today that recently hired general manager Reggie McKenzie is contemplating whether to retain coach Hue Jackson.
McKenzie will be introduced by the Raiders on Tuesday, less than a week after he reached agreement to become the team’s general manager. It is uncertain whether Jackson will be part of the proceedings Tuesday.
From what I have been told from several people familiar with the situation, Jackson is expected back for a second season as the Raiders head coach, though McKenzie has not signed off on that as of yet.
Mortensen’s report cited unnamed league sources. Jackson and McKenzie have the same agent, Kennard McGuire. McKenzie and Jackson are scheduled to meet at some point, perhaps as soon as tonight or Tuesday morning, depending upon McKenzie’s arrival in the Bay Area.
